Beneath the Waves is an Australian short film staring Higin Prazmo and Kris Felix, written and directed by James Cunningham, and produced by Presidential Productions in 2018. Filmed on location in Western Australia.
Two brothers (played by Higin Prazmo and Kris Felix) set out on a surfing trip that becomes more than just a quest for big waves. Haunted by past grievances and lingering tensions, the brothers paddle out into the vast ocean, seeking not only the perfect wave but also a chance to heal the wounds that have kept them apart.
Each swell and every twist of the tide uncovers buried emotions, testing the limits of their fragile brotherly bonds. The power of the ocean reminds us that even in the face of adversity, forgiveness and redemption can reshape the very fabric of our lives. The crashing waves become a metaphor for the turbulent journey they must navigate, ultimately leading the brothers to a deeper understanding and a chance to rebuild the foundations of their relationship.
